Letters To The Editor

Standing with Sara

To the Journal editor: Sara Cambensy is the candidate who embodies the policies of Dominic Jacobetti and every other state representative who served after him. A recent campaign mailer by her opponent had the arrogance to place his picture in the same light as them. The ground under ...

Backing Cambensy

To the Journal editor: I write to endorse Sara Cambensy for election as our next state representative. Ms. Cambensy articulates her positions on issues, not the least of which is her concern that the city of Marquette has been too generous in tax dollar commitments to private developers. She ...

Voting for Cambensy

I feel the need to address Rich Rossway’s television ad addressing Marquette County Road 595, as I find it misleading. If CR 595 is one of his leading issues, I seriously question where he was during the real fight for the road. I attended every public comment session and stated my support ...

Nurses earn support

To the Journal editor: How sad for the UP Health Marquette nurses to have been forced to come to the decision to strike: see Mining Journal stories in Sept. 23 and Sept. 24. Getting to the point of making the decision to strike is not done easily or done lightly. Nurses, as professionals, ...

Trip was success

To the Journal editor: The seventh grade students at Aspen Ridge School wish to thank the following businesses and individuals for their support in the annual class trip to Clear Lake Education Center on Sept. 20, 21 and 22: Greg Meyer (Meyer Yamaha); Dave Korpi (Hilltop RV in Ishpeming); ...

Supporting township road millage

To the Journal editor: The Negaunee Township Board has put considerable effort into a plan to repair and maintain all roads in the township that are the township’s responsibility. By hiring a professional engineering firm, we have been able to rate which roads need immediate attention, ...

Rossway has earned their support

To the Journal editor: We have traditionally been votes in the bank for Democrat candidates. This November, however, that will change. There is a special election Nov. 7 to fill the vacancy created when we lost John Kivela, our beloved brother and friend. We are interested in making sure ...

Hospital plays key role in community

To the Journal editor: Here is another ... look (at) our hospital and nurses. This is important because health care affects everyone in our community. It affects the hospitals, doctors, nurses and everyone associated with health care. And the patients, but it also affects the businessman ...

Backing Rossway

To the Journal editor: Rich Rossway is running for the 109th seat, vacated by his friend, the late John Kivela. Rich is a strong leader who fights the tough battles. He is fiscally responsible, kind and very wise. He listens and works well with everyone, no matter what their political views ...

Supporting ‘Dad’

To the Journal editor: Like most kids I grew up thinking that I was invincible. In kindergarten I wanted to be a Mulan and save China (and also maybe be a mermaid). In elementary school I wanted to be Kayley from Quest for Camelot and save her home and become a knight. In middle school I ...

Faith detailed

To the Journal editor: Thank you for featuring on the Oct. 21 Worship Page an article on the 200th anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah. Too many people are still not familiar with His name or the magnitude of His positive influence on modern society. As the article mentioned, many of ...

Mailers not necessary

To the Journal editor: I expect just about everybody is going out to their mailbox and finding political mailers for the upcoming special election for the state representative race. In the past flyers would give the position of the candidates and why we should vote for them. This is ...

Follow Lord’s way

To the Journal editor: Another tragic event this time in Las Vegas, Nevada. It’s a problem that may get worse. Banning guns may help but the real way would be for people to change. Seems to me that the moral decay that has increased in regards to respect for one another and also angry and ...

Does money talk?

To the Journal editor: One of the great books ever written was “The Wealth of Nations” and it was written by a Scottish professor, Dr. Adam Smith, in 1776. You learn about Dr. Smith in economics classes and he is quoted by business people and corporate managers, although they probably ...

Work supports kids

To the Journal editor: The eighth annual community outreach — Project Keep Kids Warm — was held in early October throughout the Ishpeming, Negaunee and Republic areas. The project was a winter clothing drive collecting jackets, snow pants, boots, hats, and mittens for needy youth in those ...

Supports Cambensy

To the Journal editor: There is an election on Nov. 7, to fill the vacancy left after the untimely passing of John Kivela. Sara Cambensy is the Democratic Party candidate for this seat and is the most qualified candidate running to represent the issues and concerns facing the residents of ...

Letters to the Editor

Preventing tragedy To the Journal editor: Recently, more than 150 community members attended our 9th Annual Out of the Darkness Community Suicide Prevention Walk. This event raises awareness and also gives a safe space for those who have lost loved ones or who struggle themselves to gather ...

Letters to the Editor: All about choice

To the Journal editor: Voting is one of the easiest ways we can have a voice in our government. But often, when I’ve encouraged others to exercise this right, I’ve been told, “Why should I vote, it doesn’t matter anyway?” I used to think that was a pessimistic, if not paranoid, ...

Letters to the Editor: NHM making strides

To the Journal editor: The Negaunee Historical Museum recently had the opportunity to have a new roof put on the building, an exterior paint job, new floor coverings and a new back porch. This large of a project could not have been accomplished if it wasn’t for the generosity of our ...

Letters to the Editor

Hospice cares To the Journal editor: We seek your help in letting your readers know about National Hospice Month and, more importantly, about the services available to them from their local hospices. The annual Marquette County Bells for Hospice event will occur once again on Nov. 1 ...
